Tenants illegally sub-letting their homes are being targeted by Milton Keynes Council in a bid to free up dozens of properties for needy families.

A recent study from The Audit Commission ‘Protecting the Public Purse’ revealed there could be as many as 230 homes in Milton Keynes being illegally sub-let or the subject of application fraud – enough homes to dramatically reduce the number of residents waiting for a home.

This is why the council is determined to clamp down on tenants who choose to commit fraud by illegally sub-letting their properties and have recovered 29 homes over the past three years saving taxpayers £100,000.
